Cycling Brittany’s Ille et Rance Canal, A Perfect Weekend Trip

Whenever I plan a bicycling trip to a new area in France, I am always nervous about whether the region is going to fulfill my desire for great scenery, fantastic food, friendly locals and nice bike paths.  I suspect that you may be the same.  If you can only take one trip a year, you want to be sure that the area is going to offer what you are looking for in a bicycling vacation destination.

I am happy to report that my recent long weekend in Brittany more than met my expectations, and left me with a strong desire to return for more bicycling adventures.  As a prelude to my posts about my Brittany bicycling itinerary, I wanted to share some pictures from the trip. Hopefully this will give you a better idea of what you would see biking along Brittany’s D’Ille et Rance Canal.
